Laser Score

Our people can be fanatic about science — we love lasers! We operate multiple facilities that can laser score and perforate various products, including lightweight polyethylene-coated papers and extrusion laminations. It provides a controlled score depth while maintaining barrier properties, for resealable retort and liquid packaging.  In addition, laser-scoring provides easy-open features for our PRO-TEAR® stick pack and even the heaviest-duty applications, such as our PRO-DURA™ bags.


    We're proud to be leaders in domestically manufactured woven bags, producing puncture-resistant structures that offer maximum flexibility and reliability. Our PRO-DURA bags feature high-quality graphic application, giving your product the best of both durability and appeal, and without the historically problematic shelf-worn look of paper bags with a clay-coated surface. Plus, we manufacture PRO-DURA in the U.S., meaning reduced lead times, lower shipping costs and greater quality assurance. And of course, our woven poly bags meet FDA and BRC standards.

    Features include:

    • Process printed up to 10 colors
    • Available in white or clear
    • Closure options: EZ-Open Tape, Pinch Heat Seal, Slider Zipper
    • Variety of lamination options
    • Runs well on automated or manual equipment
    • UV approved for 200+ hours (available upon request)
    • No flex cracking or tattered look

    Pinch-Bottom Woven Poly Bags

    Our exclusive pinch-bottom woven poly bags can be combined with a slider zipper, a pinch at both ends (we seal one end, you seal the other) and traditional sewn closures to meet any requirement. The new pinch closure also means increased graphic/advertising space and differentiation from competitors. What's more, our pinch woven poly bags perform like paper bags on existing heat-seal equipment.
